Pennyweight Beechworth Pinot Noir 2008

I don’t know why but I’m sort of in a retro/old school way today; listening to the ‘Big Chill’ soundtrack, making spinach and ricotta pie and drinking instant coffee. Something else that sort of falls in to that category is the Pennyweight Beechworth Pinot Noir 2008. All facets for me scream ‘back in the day’ about this wine, and its all good! First the label, stands out a bit doesn’t it. The colour is very much that dirty unfiltered red which is what the wine is and lastly the taste and aroma are just magic; musk sticks, roses petals, red licorice, brown spice and raspberries all melded in to one great wine.

They say retro is back. Where did it go?

  1. Cracka wine... Pale, slightly murky in colour but so complex and savoury. Winner.
